Cellulite, in case you do not know, is those little pockets of accumulated fat that appear as lumps or dimples underneath the surface of the skin. Most people will agree that exercise is the best way to get rid of this unwanted fat. Any exercise program for its removal should include cardiovascular activities. But you don't have to spend a lot of money on a gym membership to see the best results.
Simply find something that you enjoy and get determined to add more physical activity to your daily routine. Take a walk during your lunch break, enjoy a hike through the woods, sign up for a kick boxing class, or set your treadmill up in front of the television so you can exercise while watching your favorite show. You should aim for 30-45 minutes at least three times a week; although, four or five times a week is even better.
Cardiovascular activities burn a lot of calories and help you achieve or maintain a healthy weight, which is very important in cellulite removal and prevention. Aerobic exercise will also improve circulation and help the body get rid of toxins that may contribute to cellulite formation.
Strengthening the muscles will give your skin a tighter, toned appearance and make cellulite less visible. These types of exercises will also help strengthen the connective tissue so that it is not as easy for accumulated fat pockets to push their way to the surface of the skin. Since cellulite is usually found in the buttocks, thighs, and abs, you should choose exercises that target these areas.
